- Start by rolling up a piece of paper towel into a strip (I cut the paper towel rectangle in half to make squares).
- Next, fold the paper towel strip in half and then again and secure with an elastic. You may want to fold the paper towel twice or three times depending on the size of your paper towel.
- 3. Use the markers to color the paper towel. Use multiple colors, it will come out amazing!4. Next, use the spray bottle to saturate the paper towel with water just enough for the colors to blend.5. Carefully remove the elastic and unroll the paper towel. Let dry.
